Mike and Jean had to land in Panama yesterday.
Bogota ATC in Colombia contacted them to indicate that they don’t allow single-engined aircraft in the air after sunset, and requested that the guys rather land in Panama as it became clear that the guys will arrive at Medellin after sunset, so Mike and Jean got permission to divert and landed at Panama City.
Message from Mike shortly after 04:00Z this morning:We have been working for 4 hours now working out every possible connotation for the best flight tomorrow. We can only get to the plane at 6 am (sunrise) and usually it takes at least an hour to get airborne with all the paperwork and running around we have to do. If we are lucky we will get away early enough to make it to Letitia … otherwise it will be a short flight into Medellin or even maybe Cali. We will make in-flight decisions about that once we are going and can calculate estimates .. Off to sleep now.
